Issues: bike concern
4 VotesFix it! Voted!96 Newkirk Ave Kingston Ny 12401 Usa
Cars are comming down Newkirk Ave. speeding, playing very loud music at all hours of the day and night and into the early mornings hours and cars are not stopping at the corners of Newkirk Ave and Maple St. They also come from Maple St. and not stop to go up Newkrik Ave.
I've seen kids come down Newkirk Ave on their bike's and one of these days someone is going to get killed. I've already had in the past and just last year, cars crashed into my gate and now into my fence. I've already asked to have the guardrail I asked to have installed, to have it extended around the corner. I was told that this will be done. I am also making videos of these problems to show if needed. Five DVD videos have been given to the police to look at, and each contains about 40 scenes.
Well, guess I will have to have my Aldermen, come down an see what is going on here. One night this year, police and undercover NARC's stopped a car for drugs and took the person to jail. So they know what type of people are coming done this street. The night they did this, no one came down this street for 6 hours. Yes, this is on video. A car started to come down this street when this action happened an it turned around and went back up the street instead of taking the side street at the top of the hill. Why, probably because it had drugs also.
Well, nothing has changed, this is still happening. I think one way to let people know what the rules are in Kingston, is to increase the fines. I think about five dollars might do the trick. This way it will be printed in the Kingston Daily Freeman. In fact I think a full print of all the rules for Kingston should be put in the newspaper every couple of years. In this way most of the people will get notice's of what the rules and fines are for the city. I also think once I a while, the police should put a road block up and see what the cars have for correct inspection and registration stickers on this street and maybe have a little sniff of what the cars smell like inside. I've had cars stop here and people go up to the Rondout Plaza and get drugs from cars parked there then walk back down to Maple street.
I been told that a Bar is going to open up on the corner of Newkirk Ave and Delaware Ave. This is not going to help this situation and in fact probably make it worse.
Cars are still coming down and have not stopped at the stop signs and still playing loud music and speeding.
3 VotesFix it! Voted!Spring Street @ Russell St. Kingston
Bad Situation.. I have asked my Alderman R. Senor to address the issue of placing stop signs on Spring at the foot of Russell St. Children in the area frequently come down Russell St. onto Spring Street into oncoming traffic, via bikes, skateboards, wagons etc. 0/2/16/15 condition still exist
There is a Stop sign on Russell, however many of the kids are to small to see it, or pay attention. Please Alderpersons and Mayor, lets protect these kids from getting hit by a car, or possibly killed.

People rarely stop most times they cruise through the stop sign at 20-40mph. Busy neighborhood with people walking and children riding bikes. Most people stop while on Savoy but cars driving up or down Wrentham hardly ever stop.
100-160 State Highway 32 Kingston, NY 12401, USAThere is a large pothole on Albany Avenue. It is located just over the bridge, in front of the cemetary, as if you were headed for the malls. It is a large hole and will definitely do some damage to a car or bike.
S Wall St Kingston, NYsomeone went into a garage and took two bikes, a yellow 10speed with black designs, and more importantly a RED 70's frame 10 speed with GREY forks. it's my friends bike, and it was given to him by his father who owned it since he was young. been missing since last weekend (nov 5th-ish)!

Two young men on small bikes going up and down Vandeusen selling drugs and an older Hispanic man wearing all black with a gray trim jacket running the drugs to cars and people.. Activity started around 11 pm. Also runners going between Henry Bank and Vandeusen and sell drugs.. need more police to watch this area.. behind bank where the sidewalk is..
1 Broadway Kingston, NY 12401, USAI would love to see more effort put into making safe bike paths in and around the Rondout and other recreation areas in Kingston. Biking is free, it gives great pleasure, it's a cardio-vascular workout, and it could bring more people to areas like downtown. Our parks could use some specially designated bike paths too. Eventually would like to see this whole idea expand, but...I know, budget woes...There's other places to ride, but they are away from restaurants or stores. Rondout Harbor,Kingston,NY 12401,USA
59 Witswyk Ave Kingston, NY 12401, USA
Wiltswyk Avenue, just east of the Elmendorfer interchange (right by the abandoned "meeting hall") automobiles are using the location to meet for drug sales and to "use" their drugs.
I have encountered many people doing so, and with the warmer months approaching I am irked by the number of people choosing to get "high" where our daughter rides her bicycle and plays.
The road has in the past, been a "pullover, make a call, get your stuff and get high" road, and I have done my best to end the activity. Yet after a brief hiatus, the junkies are back.
The signs you are looking for are easy to see. A car, pulled to the side of the road, with an occupant (or 2), with their heads down (so they can see what they are rolling or injecting),
The obviousness of the activity could not be more so, as all us homeowners on the block park on our property or infront of it. We don't have young men driving up or walking up to our cars and making a transaction with us. We don't sit in our cars next to an abandoned buildings and we do not keep our heads in our laps, as we don't have a needle we are trying to fill or a blunt we are trying to roll.
My neighbors and I really would like this to end immediately, as the concern for our physical safety and that of our property is first and foremost.
It's simple. The police officers (be it NY State Troopers, UC Sheriffs or Kingston PD) know who lives on the block. They see our cars every time they drive by. When there is a car parked and occupied in front of the meeting house.....it's for no good reason. Those people need to get stopped and searched, and ARRESTED!
Crime and illicit use of narcotics will not be tolerated. NOT IN OUR BACKYARD! We ask for service and protection. We ask that it be done without us having to call and complain. We ask that it be done post-haste. We ask that our children be able to play in their backyard. And we thank you for it! Believe you me, we thank you!!!
27-31 Prince St Kingston, NY 12401, USASmall children often playing in the street, riding tricycles or bikes. It appears that yards are very small or that they don't have much of a yard to play in at all. I worry that one day a child will be hit by a car going.
